From the best selling, award winning, masters of fantasy, comes a charming story about a prince who wasn’t, a king who shouldn’t be, a fairy who was also a hat, and an inappropriate number of witches. The Sword of Happenstance follows a group of young adventurers who ask questions that change their world.The king is an imposter, ruling a society that is neither fair, nor equitable. There are expectations about who can rule, who can love whom, and who can use magic. When a boy from the country finds a remarkable sword, and a girl from the castle saves his life, they begin a journey that could change everything. Suitable for young adults, but sophisticated enough for a mature audience, Brust and White have crafted a wonderful story that is destined to be a classic. Sword of Happenstance is filled with puns and wordplay, but has a real heart and an important message too. A parable for our world, but never preachy, the Sword of Happenstance is a rollicking good time. Fans of the Neverending Story will love the narrative style as the subjects tell their grandchildren how they changed the world so many years ago.
